The Lady Raiders volleyball team is Yakima bound, having qualified for state for the first time since 1991 with a 3-0 victory over Mabton last week.

The Lady Raiders had lost to Lady Bears Nov. 5 in Brewster, 3-1, winning the first set 25-21, then dropping the next three 25-8, 25-30, and 25-11.

But Lake Roosevelt then went to Wenatchee for district play Nov. 7, when the ladies faced off against Mabton, winning in three sets 25-23, 26-24. and 25-16.

That win solidified their going to the state tournament, which will be played at the Yakima Sundome Nov. 14 -15 beginning with a game against the Kalama Chinooks Nov. 14 at 11:45 a.m. They'll play a 6:45 p.m. game on the same day with an opponent still to be decided.

"I'm so proud of my girls," Head Coach Teri Sue Reed said. "We have worked so hard to achieve our goal of making it to state! They are finally believing in themselves and the great team that we can be TOGETHER! No more one-man teams. It's all about working together and believing in each other. I truly believe that this is just the beginning of a great Lady Raider volleyball program. We expect to return to state year after year!"
